WorldCUR - BCUR 2023 at Warwick
This joint celebration of undergraduate research was held as an in-person event at the University of Warwick between 4th - 6th April 2023. The joint conferences welcomed over 600 delegates to our campus in Coventry, UK.
This was the first occasion on which a national conference of undergraduate research had been brought together with the World Congress in a joint event.
We were excited to provide this opportunity to share and network between communities, and that students from the UK and around the world were able to showcase their research at a single event.
WorldCUR-BCUR 2023 shared a joint Keynote Speaker, social networking events and Closing Plenary, as well as joint poster presentation sessions, with separate streams of spoken presentations for each conference.
